The Library Foundation was founded to enhance the Louisville Free Public Library’s mission of providing the people of Metro Louisville with the broadest possible access to knowledge, ideas, and information, and to support them in their pursuit of learning. Since its founding in 1980, the Foundation has provided funding to build the library’s collections, to expand technology, and to support vital library programs, services, projects, such as the Summer Reading Program, librarian scholarships, The Job Shop, the new Newburg branch library, and the Landmark Initiative to restore and renovate the historic Main Library.
